Of Such Life - For Black Lives Matter Poem by Richard Wlodarski

Of Such Life - For Black Lives Matter

Rating: 4.7

Enough pain
To last life
Endured such

I am not
Your damn slave
Whipped to death
For pleasure
I am not
Your sound board
Deafening you
You listen not
I am not
Your eye sore
To destroy
I am not
A mouthpiece
Spouting filth

I am such
Of same blood
As just you
Your brother
I do bleed
When you cut
My warm hand
But don't arm
I do scream
When you hit
Hit hit hit
But don't quit
I do see
When you poke
My eye out
But not blind
I feel
Your damn pain
Not that worse
Than just mine

I forgive
You racist
For you are
So damn blind
